Maya East Cocciardi

Maya East Cocciardi entered the world via a natural birth on Wednesday, February 7 at 4:48 pm weighing 8 lb 4 oz and measuring 20 inches.

Maya means illusion in Sanskrit.  This is an appropriate name as she shattered our uncertainty in regards to having children.

East was my maternal grandmother’s maiden name.  From the stories shared at family reunions, she was quite the free spirit – traveling globally even during her later life, wearing emerald green nail polish, and lighting up a room upon entering it.

The joy that was felt immediately as Maya was born was something I have never experienced before.

I’m going to reflect on the details of the labor and birth experience.  I’m happy to share this with you, if you really want the real – albeit bloody – details.

Expect a bombardment of Maya photos, we apologize in advance.
